Wonderfully well-acted and superbly directed, this pithy and profound play makes us consider how we can deal with grief and support others trying to cope with unbearable loss.

4 star rating for this show

A polished and suitably potty panto that has all the necessary ingredients for a melodiously mirthful and frivolous night out.
